A Little Chintz for Tea Time

Like seeds dreaming beneath the snow, your heart dreams of spring. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Welcome friends to my last Tea Time Tuesday in March. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Since my last tea party our Island was engulfed by a dangerous blizzard with hurricane force winds and accompanied by almost two feet of snow. Today we are having freezing rain and they are calling for another snow storm tomorrow. Spring, where art thou?

What should be starting to look like spring, is still looking a lot like winter. But winter cannot last forever, can it??

Therefore, I'm feeling like some pretty chintz today. Chintz is a pick-me-upper.

My Maxwell and Williams Rose Bud teapot stands at the ready. I like this teapot because it's very light in weight and easy to handle. The pretty chintz makes it pleasing to look at.

It is holding Cranberry Autumn tea sent to me by a sweet blogging friend and it's delicious!

I am dreaming of springtime. Pink Shasta daisies help lift my spirits.

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size. ~ Gertrude S. Wister

Rose Chintz made by Gracie China is today's first teacup.

The plate beneath it is Maxwell and Williams Rose Bud, a mate to the teapot and my next teacup. I like the saucer of this set as it is shaped somewhat like a bowl and therefore catches the drips very well.

Chocolate and Strawberries....

These chocolates are really mini chocolate covered cheesecakes and I am going to indulge a bit today. 

Would you like to join me? There is a comfy chair on each side of the fireplace. Please make yourself at home.

A cup of tea, a sweet, and the latest Victoria Bliss magazine helps me to reflect on all things beautiful.

I am delighted you have stopped by today! If you have a favourite teacup, teapot, coffee cup, tablescape, or a visit to a Tea Room to share, please link up and I will come and visit you.

Have a happy day, dear friends, and I hope it's warm and sunny where you are!

I am joining these parties this week!
